For those of you that trade the futures markets, there are a lot of other things outside the future markets that you should be following. But, I guess my bigger message is for those of you that aren’t in the futures markets, whether you trade them or not, the futures markets have a tremendous impact on what happens in the other markets. That’s why you should soak up every piece of good trading knowledge like a sponge in a quest to clearly see the bigger picture.

Both five-year notes and ten-year treasury-note traders and Floating Rate Income Fund trading of U.S. Treasury futures markets and t-bonds, who may be also involved in other commodities futures or forex currency trading are basically positioned in 1 of 2 main groups: hedgers, who have an interest in the underlying asset (which could include an intangible such as an index or interest rate) and are seeking to hedge the risk of price changes.

If you’ve ever wanted to attend one of those costly trader seminars, but just didn’t have the time, money, or desire to go through all the hassle – but want to learn more from the pros, you’ll love this .

The other trader's group consists of speculators who trade forex and commodity futures contracts trying to make profits by correctly predicting market price moves and opening a derivative contract related to the asset "on paper", while they have no real or practical use for or intent to actually take or make delivery of the underlying commodity. In other words, the investor is seeking to make money by using the futures contract for speculating in going long futures, or the opposite via a short futures market position.

Commodities hedgers typically include producers and consumers of a commodity or the owner of an asset or assets subject to strong influences such as an interest rate movement. Long-range interest rate fluctuation risk hedging also takes place in the 30-year treasury bonds futures contract, which some 10-year treasury note traders also trade, on the CBOT.

For example, in commodity futures markets, farmers often sell (aka hedging) futures contracts for the crops and livestock they produce to guarantee a certain price, making it easier for them to plan. Similarly, livestock producers often purchase futures to cover their feed costs, so that they can plan on a fixed cost for feed. In modern (financial) markets, "producers" of interest rate swaps, forex trading or equity derivative products will use financial futures or equity indexed futures to reduce or remove the risk on the swap.

An example which has elements of both hedging and price speculation involves a mutual fund or separately managed account whose investment objective is to track the performance of a stock index such as the S&P 500 stock index, with traders using eMini Trading Signals to trade the e-Mini S&P market and similar futures markets.

A typical Portfolio manager often "equalizes" cash inflows in an easy and cost effective manner by investing in (opening long) S&P 500 stock index futures. This gains the portfolio exposure to the index which is consistent with the fund or account investment objective without having to buy an appropriate proportion of each of the individual 500 stocks just yet.

That also preserves market diversification, maintains a higher degree of the percent of assets invested in the market and helps reduce tracking error in the performance of the funds account. When it is economically feasible (an efficient amount of shares of every individual position within the fund or account can be purchased), the portfolio manager can close the contract and make purchases of the individual stock.

The social utility of futures markets is considered to be mainly in the transfer of risk, and increased liquidity between Treasury Note traders with different risk levels and time preferences, from a hedger to a commodity trading speculator. US treasury notes are an excellent choice for both hedgers and commodity futures traders regarding hedging interest rates and for financial trading profits, involving both longer term position-trading and short-term day-trading and scalping trading opportunities.
